There will be some uncertainty about our meeting venues as long as the pandemic disruption lasts. Please check ahead to see where we’ll be meeting.
A much needed counterblast to the cliches about being over the hill: David Bainbridge, science writer and vet with a particular interest in the evolution of humans, argues that the years between 40 and 60 are the pinnacle of the human cycle. As well as explaining hot flushes, spare tyres and garden sheds, Bainbridge explodes the myth of the male mid-life crisis. He works at the University of Cambridge and writes popular science fiction books including A Visitor Within: The Science of Pregnancy, the X in Sex and most recently Teenagers.
